In light of perceived changes in electrical power systems in near future where the distributed and bulk renewable generation will significantly increase, electricity markets will become much more liberated and customer participation will start to play important role in operation and control of power systems the need for efficient and accurate simulation tools and models for a very large interconnected power systems becomes paramount. The emphasis in future power system operation and control, due to the reasons stated above will be on close to real time control which necessitates accurate dynamic models of the power system. This course will discuss some of the most recent developments in the area of very large (continental size) power system modeling and dynamic simulation applying very advanced computational methods. The new models and algorithms developed over the last few years, and in particular as a part of collaborative EU FP7 PEGASE research project (http://fp7-pegase.eu/), will be presented and illustrated using various industrial prototypes issued by PEGASE consortium.
Scope and objectives
The course is designed to give industrial practitioners, researchers, academics and postgraduate students a solid understanding of new models and advanced algorithms to be used in dynamic simulations of very large power systems.
